You
Eve Boswell Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You'll never know just how much I miss you
You'll never know just how much I care
And if I tried, I still couldn't hide my love for you
You ought to know, for haven't I told you so

A million or more times?
You went away and my heart went with you
I speak your name in my every prayer
If there is some other way to prove that I love you

I swear I don't know how
You'll never know if you don't know now
(You went away and my heart went with you
I speak your name in my every prayer)

If there is some other way to prove that I love you
I swear I don't know how




You'll never know if you don't know now
You'll never know if you don't know now

Overall Meaning

Eve Boswell's song "You’ll Never Know" is a heartfelt ballad that speaks about missing and caring for someone deeply, but not having the ability to express it. The first verse explains how much the singer misses and cares for the person in question. However, even if the singer tried to hide her love for him, it would be apparent through her actions. The second verse is about how the person in question has left, taking a piece of her heart with him. She speaks his name in every prayer and is left wondering if there's any other way she can show him her love, though she's unsure how to do that. The final lines of the chorus, "You'll never know if you don't know now," speaks about the importance of not losing time and being honest with one's feelings.


The song is a classic example of a love ballad that expresses unrequited love, which is a common theme in many love songs. The lyrics are simple and straightforward but pack an emotional punch. Eve Boswell's performance is soulful and passionate, with her voice conveying a sense of longing and sadness. The song's melancholic tone is enhanced by the use of a slow tempo and pianos, which adds to the emotional weight of the song.

You'll never know just how much I miss you
I miss you more than you'll ever realize


You'll never know just how much I care
I care about you more deeply than you can fathom


And if I tried, I still couldn't hide my love for you
My love for you is so strong that it cannot be concealed


You ought to know, for haven't I told you so
I've expressed my love for you countless times


A million or more times?
I've told you I love you too many times to count


You went away and my heart went with you
My heart stays with you even when you're not here


I speak your name in my every prayer
I think of you and pray for you always

I'm at a loss on how to prove my love for you further


You'll never know if you don't know now
You won't realize my love for you unless you open your eyes and see it now
